Kedarnath: Sushant Singh Rajput, Sara Ali Khan starrer to release on 21 December, 2018
Abhishek Kapoor's upcoming film, Kedarnath, with Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan in the lead, is a much awaited project both for the makers and the audience. While Khan, daughter of actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, makes her Bollywood debut with the film, Rajput collaborates for the second time with the director after his debut film Kai Po Che (2013). In order to let the film release widely, the makers of the film have decided to push its release to 21 December 2018.
It was reported earlier that the film is slated to release sometime in June 2018. However, according to Taran Adarsh's tweet, the date has been booked.

The film was earlier speculated to be released on 26 January. Since Hindu-Muslim brotherhood and unity happen to be the subject of the film, Republic Day seemed to be an ideal choice for the date of release of the film.
A Kri-Raj entertainment representative was quoted as saying, "When we wrapped up its shooting from Kedarnath (in Uttarakhand) and came to Mumbai, it was raining here. So, we could not build the set here because it’s huge," she said. She also revealed that once the outdoor shoot gets over, the makers would build the whole set of Kedarnath in the outskirts of Mumbai. The set schedule is likely to start sometime around April 2018 and will be wrapped by by May or June.
